  1. The story was fresh, funny, and original, the characters where delightfully designed and animated, and professional voiced, and the entire game was a pure delight to play from start to finish. I'm already well on my way through my second pass as I aspire to become a Master Ninja.

    A prime example of how to make a great licensed game. The developers at Luxoflux have gone above and beyond the call of duty to bring this imaginative cast of characters to life. The amount of polish is simply impressive and I even found myself – a jaded game critic – enjoying the game from start to finish.
  3. Kung Fu Panda is a fun title with a lot to offer. It will make a perfect gift for a younger gamer in the household, while still offering adult gamers some top rate gaming experiences (even if abit short).
  4. As long as you can stand the unnecessary emphasis that Jack Black puts on every word, Kung-Fu Panda is a win-win game for both kids and their parents.
  5. Kung Fu Panda won't be winning any awards, and it won't be gracing any end-of-year lists, but that's not to say it doesn't deserve carefully measured praise.
  6. Overall this game is a fun experience. It is definitely one of the better games that is tied in with a movie.
  7. It’s just a shame it’s all over so quickly as a more epic adventure with Po and friends would have been most welcome.

    This game was an absolute delight to play. The plot is great and the extras and unlockables are great fun. I didn't find myself getting bored because it was challenging and trying to achieve 100% for an achievement was great motivation! Expand

    Impressive graphics, fun story, great voice talent, and overall a really fun game from a small developer, with a small budget, and a small team. Great job. Expand

    When i got this i assumed it would be bad (it's a movie tie-in) but i was pleasantly surprised. It was actually really fun. I enjoyed every bit of it. It is a tad bit easy, but thats the only bad thing i can say about it. Expand

    Not your typical rush job to support movie launch. Beautiful graphics on the 360 and solid game play. Kids 6-95 years old will likely enjoy this game even if they haven't seen the movie. Good voice acting. Expand

    It may be short, but the gameplay is fun and the graphics are decent. There are quite a few characters you can play as and upgrades within the game.

    Tied with the Movie, is charming , the action has a great pace , the graphics looks pleasant. Very Rare in those cases that a Movie video game captivated me. Expand
